The first song to ever form in Andrew King's head was Time For The King. His Piano teacher, also the church organist, liked the song so much she allowed Andrew to play it on the organ as a prelude for the Sunday service. After that Andrew went on a songwriting spree and hasn't stopped since.
Ten years later, Andrew graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and began accumulating equipment needed to make an album. It took several more years before he got a workable studio.
Of all of Andrew's accomplishments, his own personal highlight is the album he wrote titled Everlasting Instrumentals. The album has never seen a record store and Andrew has made little money from it. It was recorded expressly for the people he knows and loves. Yet Andrew is convinced that it is his most prized accomplishment. Filled with diverse styles of music, Everlasting Instrumentals is a perfect example of the songwriting Andrew is capable of.
In 1997 Andrew got a job with Cornerstone TeleVision Network - the most prominent production house in Christian television. This opened a door for him to write music for the network. Most notable is the music he wrote for Journey In To Eternity, a three-hour special with Grant Jeffery depicting what life would be like in heaven.
Most people will agree that Andrew King's most significant work is the music he wrote for portions of The WatchWORD Bible. This newly released series is the entire New Testament of the Bible on VHS or DVD. Word-for-word Biblical text and images depicting events in the Bible are accompanied by music written to be very particular to what is seen on the video. Andrew worked closely with the producer to meticulously season the music until it was Bible-worthy. Indeed, it is his biggest contribution, thus far, to the music/video industry.
